Wareham Community Television worked on a series of interviews about opioid addiction. We sat down with the parents of different communities, all of whom have lost a child to opioid addiction. We spoke of their children before their addiction, during their addiction, and the day addiction took their lives. Through sharing their stories, these courageous families are determined to help spare other parents the indescribable ordeal they face daily.
